|Grab Bag - Jahzzar|
Grab Bag is the collection of five songs where the piano takes the lead vocal, where chords and harmonics have equal or bigger weight than the melodic lines. As in "The Crowd", each instrument has its particular line, more or less remote from the main theme, and as a whole, the global set shows more than the sum of its parts. Different open chords, adding up, give depth to these imperfect "homemade" recordings...

|Kučka EP - Kučka|
Between mid 2011 and Early 2012 Laura Jane Lowther spent countless hours, verge collecting, sampling and gathering various natural sounds to be used for her electronic project kučka. With a love of synth tones and the human voice Lowther combined all of these elements to create a different kind of pop, not quite polished, not quite gritty. The result is her debut EP (self-titled), sometimes dark, a hint of glitch, some warped piano but always with her haunting voice floating on top of her inimi...

|The Four Seasons (Vivaldi) - John Harrison with the Wichita State University Chamber Players|
The Four Seasons (Italian: Le quattro stagioni) is a set of four violin concertos by Antonio Vivaldi. Composed in 1723, The Four Seasons is Vivaldi's best-known work, and is among the most popular pieces of Baroque music. The texture of each concerto is varied, each resembling its respective season. For example, "Winter" is peppered with silvery pizzicato notes from the high strings, calling to mind icy rain, whereas "Summer" evokes a thunderstorm in its final movement, which is why the movement...

|Live at WFMU on Dark Night of the Soul with Julie on May 31, 2011 - Kristeen Young|
"Another girl with a piano? Maybe, if the piano was on fire and the girl at the edge of a cliff. Sugar-laced trills, emotional shrieks and percussive piano infect the darkest hours when Kristeen visits the WFMU studio to kick off her NYC dates. This session was co-produced by the esteemed Tony Visconti, known for his work on albums by David Bowie, T. Rex, Sparks, Thin Lizzy, and more." ~Julie

" This eerie netrelease comes courtesy of newish French imprint La Manufacture De Bruit, which translates as The Factory of Noise (thank you internet translator). Researching this duo, comprising David Vallée and Stéphane F was a bit of a task and I certainly don’t recommend blindly typing Post Mortem Photographs into Google. Still, they got my attention and I’m glad I investigated further. This record is split into 8 movements and one 12 second interlude and focuses on the duo’s fascina...

Robbie's debut CD was the surprise hit of '96, and served notice that a) Country Music did NOT have to suck b) that he was a top-notch songwriter and performer and c) things in the underground country scene were never going to be the same. Truly the bar had been raised. A classic.Let's let Robbie describe it:"13 original country songs with an early 50's production aesthetic (hot vocals, robust bass, live instrumental tracks) and arrangement, reviving certain types of songs long abandoned by main...

|Panta Rei - Panta Rei|
Panta Rei is attributed to Heraticlus thoughts about change. Πάντα ῥεῖ (panta rei) meaning everything flows in ancient Greek. And this is exactly what you get in this album. Originally issued on the Harvest label in 1973, this is a wonderful stream of trippy Heavy Swedish prog with an intensely groovy jazz-rock & fuzz oriented approach that comes close to Frank Zappa circa “Hot rats”, with some spacey-freaked-out atmospheres and an underlying Canterbury feel. The guit...

It would be easy to accuse Cuddle Magic of being Luddites if only they weren’t making music about a hundred times more interesting than all the panda cubs huddling in basements with SP-404s. I mean, samplers hell, these folks don’t even use electric guitars. The thing is, while there is much fascinating and beautiful music to be made with samplers, for many people who adopt the instrument carelessly it becomes a crutch...
